Since I've been saying ever since the Nov 2020 election it was nothing more than a rejection of Trump, but not an embrace of the Democratic Party or their agenda, I'll agree with you. That is if one looks at the whole ballot and not just the presidential.
I wonder if it was coincidence that Biden won by 7 million votes, if going by the exit polls, there were 7 million ticket splitters voting for Biden, but Republican down ballot. I think not.
Yeah, I'd say the Democrats need to come up with their own message beside just being anti-Trump. Anti-Trump isn't going to work anymore. Most independents have placed Trump on the trash heap of history. He's no longer in charge, no longer president. Biden is and the Democrats control congress. That was McAuliffe problem, his anti-Trump campaign, rhetoric really fired up the Democrats. But independents ignored it, they were interested in local issues. Youngkin addressed them, McAuliffe didn't.
Live and learn, forget Trump and come up with a positive message and vision for middle America. Do something to get working class America back on your side, the Democrats have lost a lot of this group to the GOP. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/04/briefing/democrats-election-working-class-voters.html
